7 Creating Mathematical Documents

Maple allows you to create powerful documents as business and education tools, technical reports, presentations, assignments, and handouts.

You can:

 • Copy, cut, and paste information
 • Format text for reports or course material
 • Insert images, tables, and symbols
 • Generate 2-D and 3-D plots and animations
 • Sketch in the document or on a plot
 • Insert hyperlinks to other Maple files, web sites, or email addresses
 • Place instructions and equations side by side
 • Bookmark specific areas
 • Easily update, revise, and distribute your documents

In this chapter, we will create a document that demonstrates many of Maple's documentation features. For further examples, note that this guide was written using Maple.
